Recruiting

Class of 2015 (High School Seniors)

February 22, 2015 - College Soccer New's recruiting experts have analyzed the 2015 high school class one last time in order to identify and rank the top one-hundred fifty players in the class. This is the final player rankings of the 2015 class. The player rankings of the 2015 class were adjusted throughout the year. Individuals who have signed professional contracts as of the date the rankings were issued are not included.    

The player rankings reflect a projection of the potential impact a player will have at the collegiate level.  While room for debate always exists in any type of ranking, and no one can totally predict what the future will hold, we are confident that the CSN recruiting experts player rankings will become a gold standard for information and analysis of recruits and in evaluating recruiting classes.   

The player rankings include the individual's club team, their home town, their position, and the college (if any) to which they have committed verbally.
